Hérouville-Saint-Clair Hotel in Basse-Normandie, France by Platform Architectures

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Platform Architectures 

The development that completes the urban composition programme of the town of  Hérouville-Saint-Clair is an enterprise centre to the west of the Place de l’Europe. The requirements of the programme – the local employment centre, a business incubator and a restaurant – imposed constraints on the layout of the centre that were overcome by the three primary volumes being assembled in an apparent imbalance.

Horace Mann Elementary School in Washington DC by Marshall Moya Design

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Marshall Moya Design

The design of Mann Elementary School was conceptualized with a vision to unite indoor and outdoor learning spaces, and to centralize the collaboration of students. The heart of the school is layered with “green” spaces that foster sustainable urban gardening and promote nature-filled learning. The indoor and outdoor structures are intertwined with lush green spaces and botanical gardens that allow students to learn not only in their classrooms, but also outside, fostering curiosity, learning, and discovery.

MMR in Chalais, Switzerland by Archi7

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Archi7

The project is inscribed within the urban tissue of Réchy. It contributes for the densification of the village, emphasizes the street front defined by its neighboring existing buildings and re-enforces the rural character of the site. Its compact volume, which scarcely uses land surface, restricts its visual impact.

Archipelago House in Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The starting point is the direct relation to the dramatic archipelago landscape with the objective to offer within a simple frame – a platform – several diverse readings of the relation space-nature.

Conceived as a light weight construction in wood and glass, this summerhouse is built in the outer Stockholm archipelago. The horizontal character of the black stained exterior relates to the verticals of tall grown pines and the mirrored views of the Baltic Sea.

The residential house at the Millstätter See is a brick basement turn-of-the-century wooden house. Its construction date is estimated to be between 1900 and 1910.The construction assignment was to refurbish the perennially occupied house and to convert it into a modern summer house. The greatest emphasis was placed on keeping the original external appearance while adapting the internal space to make it contemporary and equipping it with the newest technology.

New Furniture Store at Innsbruck’s Gates in Grabenweg, Austria by Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH

The new Leiner furniture store can be seen from a considerable distance as you approach Innsbruck from the East on the A12 motorway. The four story structure is a beacon, in Leiner’s corporate green, to people passing by. Along with the large areas of green, the angular form of the building itself makes a strong impression. Like a folded tablecloth, the translucent metal construction envelopes the volumes of the building. With this striking facade, Zechner & Zechner are taking a stand against the standardisation and anonymity of current furniture store architecture.
